Graphics

The Eyes of Ara is a first person 3D adventure that has the player exploring a mysterious, ancient castle filled with puzzles to solve and dark corners and areas to explore. The 3D environments are what makes this game interesting. The rooms look delightfully dark and ominous. There are interesting things to explore and the game looks really good both the Switch display and on television.

Gameplay

Playing the game is where The Eyes of Ara really struggles. There are two modes of play. TV mode allows for one controller to allow the user to move the camera and activate and utilize the puzzles. Handheld mode takes away the use of the controllers and utilizing the touch screen of the Switch. The controls are fine for PC controls, but can be unyielding and annoying at times.
